4th and final stop on my great midwest brewery tour.

I visited this place on a Monday at lunch. We actually got there about 10 minutes before it opened so we had to wait outside. A few other people were doing the same. By the time we left (about 12:30PM) it was filling up.

This is Three Floyds production brewery with a small taproom and restaurant. It's located in an industrial park in Munster, IN. The inside of the restaurant was decorated with Three Floyds posters as well as some pop culture stuff. A bit of a hipster feel to it, including the employees. Can't complain about the service though, it was very good. They have about 15 beers of their own on tap plus a few guest taps. They have a taster of four of their beers. Unfortunately, no Zombie Dust on tap when I was there but I had a Alpha Klaus porter which was outstanding. Prices were very good. They also sell bottles to go.

The food was pretty good. It's a bit eccentric with some unique ingredients and combinations.

Highly recommend. Great beer (obviously) good food and a good atmosphere. The only downside is the industrial park location but that is forgotten while inside.

Located at the back end of an industrial parkway and medical center mish mash of an area, is the entire Three Floyds operation from kettle to table. From what I understand, if you get here early on a weekend, you are going to be in line, outdoors, like we were. So, if you're alone, choose wisely: to-go bottle line, or brewpub line.

For those of you that haven't been and expect a beer mecca, check those expectations at the door, or frankly the parking lot. As you can see, this picture shows a very small rectangle of a building, and it isn't lying. The brewery itself is pretty huge, towering over the brewpub, which is a tiny fraction of the size. While bigger than your average local pub, it is only moderately so. It may seat around 100 people, but they are keeping it cozy and it doesn't look like that's changing any time soon.

The taplist is also relatively small, and the size of most pours are as well. While we were there, about 10 FFF drafts, and 3 guest were flowing. Some are moderately to very rare, but most are easily accessible, outside of Chicago, that is. I find that Chicagoans have a harder time picking up regular FFF beers like Zombie Dust, Gumballhead and Alpha King than non-Chicagoans.

Where they are killing it is the food--extremely wide variety of really delicious and unique dishes. Some are twists on classics, (the burgers and mac and cheese were on just about every other table multiple times over). Others are pretty original, like spicy pork ramen with house made chili paste, green beans and blueberries, scrumptious cheese curds with herbs and veggies that make them taste exactly like Cool Ranch Doritos. We also had a thyme sponge cake and sage ice cream dessert that was oddly delicious and went very well with the smoothing effect of Backmasking.

This place has a cool atmosphere, with some oddball or hardcore movies playing silently to a never-ending heavy metal soundtrack overhead. For us, Fear and Loathing was playing, and then, when someone decided to let the children come in and sit at the high chairs (yes they allow kids, a pet peeve of mine), they started playing Finding Nemo (scratching that pet peeve itch to a bleed).

I really enjoyed myself here. The staff is extremely fun and were very personable. I really enjoyed the punk/ psychedelic rock atmosphere and music that really paired well with their beer. The food was also very good. The tacos were great as was the open faced brisket sandwich.

If you like beer this is a must stop.

Visited here twice during a two week beer-cation. Was very excited given all the hype but was left sorely disappointed. Definitely overrated!

My wife have now been to 3 Floyds twice now. Both times we have went on a Thursday. My wife and I love the food. It is not bar food, but rather eccentric and gourmet. We have tried the wings (excellent tastes like bacon instead of wings), the poontang fries as my wife calls them (they are wonderful probably my favorite thing I have had there), the duckfat popcorn (more like caramel corn), the mac and cheese excellent, the steak sandwich which is excellent. All the food is moderately priced but we live in Chicago area so that is relative. My wife who doesn't eat salads and is skinny says the food is world class. I would have to agree. The service is excellent and we have yet had to wait a significant amount of time. The decor is really cool.

The beers are reasonably priced an excellent selection is on tap. Zombie Dust is $5 for a pint, blot out the son is excellent, had Wigsplitter on Nitro which was quite different than it in the bottle. It is well worth the trip and all the hype. I will say that I have yet to have a bad beer from them, as even it is not my flavor or taste of beer that I always understand what they are doing. My favorites that I have had from them are Zombie Dust, Blot out the Sun, Wigsplitter, Gumballhead, Backmasken, and Alpha Kong.

Went again for the third time on a Friday it was even more crowded. We waited for 20-30 minutes this time. Okay I have a new favorite food there. The cheese curds they are just the bomb. Hands down the best thing I had there so far. Second would be the Pooontang fries, third green beans. Had the burger also and I was not really that impressed by the death burger was overly salty and I like the burger. My wife only let me get one beer and I tried the guest tap this time it was C.R.E.A.M something or another, but it was unimpressive (not my taste) should have went for the drunken elf by 3 Floyds as I have never tried that one from them. All 3 floyds beers are good even if it is not your taste. I just understand what they are doing with the beer. I also think the food is the same way. Have to give a big shout out to them for their excellence. I would prefer that they would play a little less death metal but hey I only had one beer this time. My wife however was head banging at a 8 minute death metal song which after 9 years of marriage I didn't even know she liked metal that much! LOL!

Place can be loud with metal, but a lot of fun with unbelievable food for a bar/brewery. My wife has also ordered the lamp meatballs which were really interesting, and red snapper, and also the green beans which were in cumin and has a sauce of yogurt (they were actually quite awesome).

Great brewpub! The place was packed and had a lot of taps! The food was pretty good. They also had beer to go with about 4 different 4-packs and about 8 different bottles.

World class beer, and the food was fantastic at the brew pub as well. I got great service all the way around. Great place to get a drink and some grub to go with it. Three Floyds sets the bar for what a brewpub should be.

3 Floyds is obviously one of the iconic US Craft Breweries. We lined up an hour before it opened on a Sunday morning. The signs were already up for all the beer that wouldn't be for sale. We got a table, ordered lunch and several pints. The food was great, the beer excellent, but it was just so obvious that they really didn't give a damn whether we were there or not. I guess that's their thing and it probably didn't matter. They have a huge following so good for them. I'm glad we went but once was probably enough.
